Grey County Invites Your Input to the Recreational Trails Master Plan




Recreational Trails Master Plan

September 29, 2017

Stakeholder Announcement
Project Start Up
Grey County is starting to prepare a Recreational Trails Master Plan. This plan will provide a blueprint for future trails projects and requirements. It will be focused on linking community trails to County trails, determining the ultimate use of the CP Rail Trail and looking at trail use and future requirements for trails in some of the 48 County forest properties owned by the County.
We will be developing trail standards for walking trails, bicycle trails and multi-use trails, as well as considering the compatibility of ATV and snowmobile users with non-motorized users. The County will be developing criteria to apply for restricting certain trail users to specific areas (or trails). The user groups we have identified at this point include snowmobile, horseback riding, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, dog walking, and ATV use.
We are interested in meeting with all variety of trail users in Grey County at the early stage of this project to understand how the existing trails are used today. We will also be interested in hearing about any trail conflicts, opportunities for new trails and improving existing trails.
We would like to set up meetings with individual groups or stakeholders in October (as necessary). Please get back to us and let us know if you are interested in meeting with County representatives and our consulting team to discuss the startup of this project. The County will also be hosting a less formal public workshop and an official public meeting later in the fall where you can provide your feedback if you choose.
Please respond to Sarah Johnson, or at 519-372-0219 ext. 1241 to schedule a time to meet.
